I finally cured my pompholyx and wanted to share in the hopes it helps someone else with this awful disease.
Mine was of the severe form on my feet that prevented me from walking at times; I suffered for 6 months sometimes with severe pain.
1. Ensure any active fungal or staph infections have been treated with antibiotics or as needed otherwise the condition cannot stabilise.
2. Dermol 500 lotion 500ml prescribed from doctor: In the weeping form of blistering the aim is to convert to the dry cracked form with harder blisters. Soak feet (I used a plastic washing up bowl) in about 2 tablespoons of dermol with hot water. In the beginning I also washed the feet in soap to further dry the skin out. Do this for 10 minutes I did 3 x daily at first then to once nightly. Putting vinegar in the mix can help further dry it out.
3. Clobetasol 0.05% cream steroid prescribed from doctor: thinnish layer over skin. Then place feet into 100% cotton socks. Leave 1 hour.
4. Flexitol heel balm general and diabetic foot care (I bought from Savers): use when feet have dried out and are in the cracking stages, donít use before this. Place on after steroid cream 1 hour treatment. Place in 100% cotton socks for at least one hour. I then applied another layer on before bed and left without socks overnight.
